What you put into your body is just as important as what you put onto your body. Which is why, along with a healthy breakfast to start the day, it’s just as important to nourish your skin with the same healthy organic goodness. Nourish Organic is the perfect line for this.
Nourish Organic was one of the very first beauty companies to work with the USDA and continues to do so to create pure, certified organic products that are also environmentally friendly. All their products are gluten free, vegan and certified organic. Nourish Organic’s ‘Pledge to Purity’ means their products contain zero chemicals, artificial fragrances and preservatives, making it healthy for you and the planet.
To start off a productive morning, it’s always great to have a routine. Mine is a good thorough skincare regimen before I apply my makeup, do my hair and get dressed. Like most people, I don’t have a whole lot of time so I like to keep things simple, so here are the skin-care products I’ve been using each morning to start my day off right.
my NOURISH ORGANIC morning routine
FRESH FIG – HYDRATING & SMOOTHING BODY
Out of the shower, I apply the body lotion with an aloe & shea formula. It’s fast absorbing, non-greasy formula is perfect for the morning. You can get dressed without a mess. I personally have pretty sensitive skin, and I find this lotion to be really soothing. It keeps my skin really soft all day and the scent is very subtle and natural.
LAVENDER MINT – FRESH & DRY DEODORANT
After the lotion comes the deodorant. I can’t stress how important it is to use all natural deodorants. I know the struggle of trying to find the right kind, and I think this one might be the answer! This deodorant works to mask body odour and uses natural ingredients including cornstarch and plant enzymes to keep moisture away. Most importantly, there is NO aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens or other artificial ingredients that might harm you. Because deodorant is applied to your sensitive underarms, which house very important lymph glands, build up of these harmful chemical compounds can increase your chances of getting breast cancer, having kidney problems and other diseases.
CUCUMBER + WATERCRESS – MOISTURIZING CREAM FACE CLEANSER
Next up is the face cleanser. It’s fragrance free, which means it won’t irritate or dry your sensitive skin while washing away any dirt and leftover makeup. It’s intended for all skin types and works like a charm.
ROSEWATER + WITCH HAZEL – REFRESHING & BALANCING, ALCOHOL FREE FACE TONER
After washing your face, it’s great to use a toner to really ensure all the dirt and makeup is gone and your pores are ready to face the day. Witch hazel contains amazing antioxidants that work to tighten your pores and even out skin tone. It’s also really great in reducing puffiness and skin inflammations, acne and eczema. Rose Water has really similar properties, full of antioxidants and vitamins C and E. Just like Witch Hazel, it works to tighten pores, reduce redness and helps fight against aging skin.
APRICOT + ROSEHIP – PURE HYDRATING ARGAN FACE SERUM
After a thorough wash and toner, I like to apply a face serum. 2-4 pumps of this onto the skin and décolleté will keep your skin hydrated all day. It’s design to deeply hydrate the skin and soften it. This serum contains essential fatty acids that are great for reducing signs of stress and fatigue (which I think all of us could use a little of every once and a while, especially in the morning)!
AVOCADO + ARGAN OIL – RENEWING + COOLING EYE TREATMENT
If it’s the weekend, I love using this cooling eye treatment to brighten up and protect the skin around my eyes. The avocado and argan work to deeply moisturize the thin and sensitive under-eye skin, helping to reduce symptoms of a long and tiring week.
AVOCADO + ARGAN – REWING EYE CREAM
This one is very similar to the eye treatment, but I like it for everyday use. Using Nourish Organic eye cream reduces puffiness and redness while adding a layer of protection for the day ahead.
ARGAN + POMEGRANATE – ULTRA HYDRATING FACE CREAM
Last but not least, I apply the Nourish Organic hydrating face cream to my face and neck. It works really well to block out any dryness, by creating a layer of protection that helps keep the moisture in. It contains antioxidants from the pomegranate, which help to protect the skin from environmental stressed. And from the Açai, we get the benefits of reducing fine lines and signs of stress and fatigue. Double the damage-control.
Like I mentioned earlier, I think it’s really important to incorporate natural, organic and pure products into everyday life. Our skin is technically our largest organ, so it’s important that we’re feeding it the right ingredients. Check out more of Nourish Organic products here.
